MESKWAKI NATION EMPLOYEES ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS DURING HOME VISITS AND ASKING RESIDENTS TO DO THE SAME.
Due to COVID-19 safety concerns and recommendations from the CDC, all employees, residents, clients, customers, and vendors who come in contact with others are required to wear a mask. This includes visits to administrative buildings as well as contact for work related home visits to Settlement locations. Meskwaki Nation employees, who are required to wear a mask, are also required to ask all residents, clients, customers, and vendors to also wear a mask during any/all home visits. If no mask is available, staff will provide a mask to everyone they come in contact with during their visit.
Before entering a home, employees will call (or ask before entry if no phone is available) and be provided with the following information:
- Do you or anyone in the home have COVID-related symptoms?
- Has anyone in the home been directly exposed to a known positive individual in the last 14 days?
- Does anyone in the home have an active case of COVID-19?
If the household answers “yes” to any of the above questions, the employee will reschedule their visit unless circumstances require immediate attention.
If a resident, client, customer, or vendor refuses to wear a mask when in contact with an Meskwaki Nation employee, they will NOT provide the scheduled service or work to those individuals and return to their workplace.
NOTE: Even while wearing a mask, any Close Contact with a known positive individual requires a quarantine of a minimum 14 days. “Close Contact” is defined as being within 6 feet of someone for at least 15 minutes.
We thank you for your understanding and support.
